Free review copy at Story Cartel for an honest review:


July 27, 2013: Insight Lite Publishing is pleased to announce the paperback edition of  The Goat-Ripper Case ($3.99, Amazon e-book; $12.95 paperback)


Afghan veteran and Bronze Star hero Jake Knight comes home to heal, save his family farm, fall in love … and catch a puffed-up wine adulterator making obscene profits who is bent on murder.  Jake races to stop him and start his career at a private investigator.  This is a fun, fast read…a sexy, romantic crime thriller that honors the Sonoma land and the culture of wine and cheese.


“The crime thrillers of John D. MacDonald inspire me.  He was a neighbor down the street where I grew up in Florida.  Now, 40 years later, I look forward to honoring him and the many excellent thriller writers and true-character investigators that San Francisco has bred with Goat-Ripper,” says author Peter Prasad, a pen name for a 40-year writer, father, and award-winning environmentalist in San Francisco.




“As a location, Sonoma is a magical character in Goat-Ripper.  I made cheese every weekend for a year to get that right.” says Prasad.  “The food, wine, flavors and beauty of Sonoma feed my muse.”  Early readers praise the story’s scenic descriptions, action and characters that are pure California.


Reader comments: “You do every Marine proud.”  “Nash Bridges’ daring, Steinbeck’s eye and Vonnegut’s heart.”  “What a thrilling location for a mystery.”  “Deep reverence for Sonoma land and the culture of cheese and wine; you can taste his words.” “Due to be regarded as a great fictional slice of the California wine country.”


Prasad improved his crime thriller with participation in a writer’s critique group in Santa Rosa.  The book was professionally edited and designed for both e-readers and paperback editions.


Prasad published Campaign ZEN, 500bc – 2012 last year as a meditation on the ballot box and the US election process.  It’s an illustrated and subjective history of campaigns from Athens to Colonial times up to 2012.  Prasad calls it “funny political doggerel – a noble tavern tradition.”


Prasad is a husband and father, speaker, writing coach, green energy advisor, and pilgrimage tour leader to the Zen temples of Kyoto, Japan.  He writes every day.
